Homemade beauty products anyone can make for none or very little money.
1. Makeup wipes
Paper towels, cleanser, witch hazel (get at local drugstore), water & lotion (optional), a container or ziplock bag.
– mix 1/2 cup water, 2-3 drops of facial cleaner, 2 tbsp of witch hazel and a drop of lotion (if you have dry skin). Take paper towels and cut them into squares. Put them into the mixture so that they soak it all up. Seal it in a container or ziplock bag. To use just remove and wipe your face. These are great for a quick face wash without water – no rinsing needed.
2. Makeup brush cleaner
bottle to keep it in, water, alcohol, gentile cleaner, leave in hair conditioner (optional)
– mix (based on a 1 cup container) 1/4 cup water, 2/4 cup alcohol, 4 drops of a gentile cleanser, 4 drops of a leave in conditioner (optional – but this keeps the natural hair makeup brushes from drying out)
To use just spray or apply to the brush or a towel and gently massage the brush until its clean. This is great to use on your brushes in-between shampoos.
Hair powder (this can cost up to $20) – alternative – baby powder – use this sparingly especially if you have dark hair. (people use powder in between shampoos to add body and freshen up an oily scalp.
Body polish ( this can cost up to $30) – alternative – get the apricot facial scrub from the drugstore. This works great for your legs and arms to get off all the dead dry skin and make your body glow.
A salon conditioning treatment (can cost up to $50) – alternative – please use a good product like a deep hair conditioner, but any hair conditioner would work. Dampen hair and apply conditioner – comb through and put a plastic bag over your hair (hair only – you don’t want to suffocate your self) and sit either in the sun or by a warm spot like the heat vent. Let it sit on your head for 20 minutes then rinse. This will give your hair a moisture boost.
